Charlie Harville

Charlie Harville became the Sports Director at WGHP channel 8 in High Point, NC in October 1963. He held that position until leaving there around 1975. Charlie reported the sports on the nightly newscasts. He also did many of the ACC Basketball games and sometimes when the network came to cover a game ,he would announce those also. I first saw Charlie doing the sports on WFMY channel 2 in Greensboro during the fifties on up to the time he went over to channel 8. Charlie returned to WFMY sometime after leaving WGHP. My fondest memories of Charlie Harville is when he hosted "Championship Wrestling" on WGHP from 1964 to 1974. It was during that timeframe I was able to see Charlie Harville in person quite often as he was the ring announcer for the wrestling matches in Winston-Salem and Greensboro. I will be covering some of those shows here later. The ad is from January 1964.
